PSU’s First Undergraduate Research Faculty Mentor Support Contract
Dr. Jody Neef, Assistant Professor in Chemistry has agreed to the first PSU Undergraduate Research Faculty Mentor Support Contract. Dr. Neef will be provided $1,875 in professional development funds after mentoring the equivalent of six students conducting research through the summer, spring and fall semesters of the 2013-2014 Academic Year. PSU Undergraduate Research Faculty Mentor Support Contracts are available for up to $2,500 of professional development funds which are awarded after the equivalent of eight students have been mentored. Contracts can be prorated to serve fewer students for less funding.
